Read on to learn how to care for granite!

Sealing

Natural stones are porous, meaning that they can absorb water or other liquids that can cause unsightly stains. While granite isn’t as porous as some natural stones, you’ll want to ensure that you’ve sealed your granite as soon as it’s been installed in your home. While some granite sealants can last for years, some will need to be reapplied annually or biannually. If you can’t remember the last time you invested in granite sealing, then you should get in touch with Concrete & Marble Transformerz to set up a granite sealing appointment.

Cleaning

After you’ve invested in granite sealing, day-to-day cleaning is your first line of defense against damage. Most substances can be wiped away with a warm washcloth, but raw meat and other health hazards should be cleaned using a chemical designed for granite countertops. Never use bleach or vinegar on your countertops, as these substances can eat through your granite sealant and damage the underlying surface.

Polishing

Granite is a beautiful stone, but it looks even more beautiful when you’ve invested in granite polishing. It’s important to note that granite polishing can only be performed if the surface is thoroughly sealed, so make a granite sealing appointment before moving on to this step. You invested in granite because it’s a tough material, but its toughness requires a great deal of effort to polish. In fact, granite polishing is most effective when it’s performed using a diamond polishing pad.

At Concrete & Marble Transformerz, we utilize industry-leading granite polishing techniques and equipment to deliver a smooth and eye-catching finish. You’ll never have to worry about purchasing expensive pads or polishing machines when you choose us for your next granite polishing appointment!

Repairing

Accidents are a normal part of life. Maybe you set a hot pan down on your granite countertops without realizing that it would leave a heat mark, or perhaps an accidental drop chipped part of the surface. The good news is that granite repair is almost always straightforward and can remedy nearly any problem. Chips and scratches can be buffed out, and granite crack repair is easy when you have stone restoration experts like ours working in your home. If your granite is stained, then we can help you remove the stain and restore the surface to its former beauty.

These are the four main ways to maintain the granite in your home. If you need granite sealing, cleaning, polishing, or granite crack repair in Los Angeles, then get in touch with Concrete & Marble Transformerz to schedule a free estimate!
